Tiger Time (5th Hour)

Students can come to the library during Tiger Time -- no pass needed from a teacher.  Due to limited space, there are 30 Tiger Time openings available on a first come, first served basis. Be sure to sign up early, because we fill up quickly!

Students are encouraged to sign up for a Tiger Time spot in one of the following ways:

  • the Tiger Time sign-up form on the tab above.  This form is accessible on mobile devices
  • stopping by the library to fill out the form by using the Chromebook on the library desk 
  • just coming to the library at the beginning of Tiger Time (no guaranteed spot)

Students coming to the library at other times during the school day will need a pass from a teacher.
